Thank you for reading! I have been enjoying the quilt a long immensely and wanted to extend my thanks and appreciation to everyone who has followed along - even if you haven't decided to share a picture - just knowing you're out there somewhere sewing along is also very gratifying .  We are just about finished with Be My Neighbor , The final Block #16 is slated to drop next week -  I hope some of you will  then share a photo of your finished quilt ( here or anyplace on Social Media )when you get them put together .

Happy Holidays!
